drank Buttered Rum by Earth Teaze
729 tasting notes

Hmmm,I don’t think I’m a fan of this. I don’t think it’s “Buttered Rum”.
I’m getting more fruit (berry) and vanilla. Normally fruit and vanilla wouldn’t bother me, but this is just strange. Can’t quite put my finger on what’s wrong with it, but not at all what I was expecting.
Thank you yyz for the opportunity to try this, but it’s a miss for me. :((

Hah berries and vanilla don’t scream buttered rum to me either. :P

yyz

Same for me. I really just got a sort of strawberry vanilla tea. This company has nice time but their flavourings are pretty inconsistent

yyz

Meant nice tins.

OMGsrsly

I think I’ve seen those at Winners. Good to know. :)

I grabbed some at Winners too a while back – I’ll leave them on the shelf next time.

Haha! You have more on its way! That’s the risk you take by being a massive compulsive swapper, lol!!
OMGsrsly, Bought mine at Costco just a few weeks ago, so glad I didn’t go crazy to buy them all! (You know how things escalate sometimes…)

I needed to update my profile. I joined Steepster 03Mar13. I am just amazed at how much my tastes have changed since then.
When I discovered loose leaf tea about a year and half ago, I didn’t know anything other than my local Davids and Teavana/Teaopia. Stumbling onto Steepster CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Hello, my name is Dex I’m a tea addict.
I’ve been through the “I need to try every single tea out there” phase. I really hope the worst of that has passed. I’ve learned enough to know that I only need to try HALF of all the teas out there. LOL
When I started this journey, I was all about the flavored rooibos and fruity tisanes. Don’t get me wrong there is still room for dessert (chocolate/caramel/nutty) Rooibos teas in my cupboard and I still do enjoy them, BUT I am quickly learning to appreciate the some of the straight teas of the world.
Big bold (but not icky)pu’erh is suddenly my favorite, followed by woody/roasted oolongs. I’m just starting to explore straight black teas, and have found some that I really like.
Generally speaking I’m not into greens at all, only like the occasional green oolong, and white teas are just too mild for my tastes (unless they are fruit flavored). I still enjoy really good fruit tisanes, but am now cold steeping them.
I don’t like floral/herbal blends, and mint anything is not on my preferred list.
I am still exploring new teas, adapting to my changing tastes, understanding more every day how little I really know about tea. Ultimately I would love to find approximately 50 teas that I just “can’t live without” and always have them in my cupboard. That might not be practical, but that what I’m searching for. It’s going to be a fun journey.

All in all, I love this site. I’ve met some wonderful people, and have gotten to try some amazing teas because of them. It really restores your faith in humanity when you get a note saying “oh by the way I sent you some tea”. Wonderful, generous, people here.
